Overview

Wedding Venue Pool
Great Value
Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Sitting amongst 5000m2 of lush gardens overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills this gorgeous stone villa dates back to the late 1800s. The recent renovation was undertaken following strict sustainability guidelines giving it a 1st class energy saving rank while retaining the villa’s Renaissance architecture.

Designed as an apartment on each level, the ground floor opens up on to an al fresco dining area, private pool and landscaped gardens while the first floor enjoys the most magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. All the living areas are spacious and immaculately decorated with high quality finishes.

Both floors have their own kitchen, living and dining with three en-suite bedrooms on each level making the villa perfect for groups travelling together. There is a gorgeous stone bridge linking the pool and gardens (all paths are wheelchair-friendly) and one of the bedrooms on the first floor is wheelchair accessible.

Air-conditioned throughout this authentic Tuscan gem is fully-equipped with everything you need for a glamorous getaway!

“Villa I Gigli just outside Arezzo in Tuscany is a stylish, tranquil getaway great with views of the rolling hills of the region that’s large enough for two families or a group travelling together.” Read the Telegraphs full review of Villa I Gigli.

Villa I Gigli is perched on a hill above a valley with breathtaking views of the rolling green hills and the town of Arezzo. The villa forms part of an agricultural estate and is therefore surrounded by forest and farmland. On site, a variety of organic products are made including wine, extra virgin olive oil and liqueurs.

Lying in the foothills of the Apennine Mountain Range, the ancient town of Arezzo spreads out across the fertile river valleys of the Arno, Tiber, Casentino, and Valdichiana. Just a 20-minute drive from the property Arezzo is a lovely medieval town with plenty of historical and cultural sites to visit and, of course, restaurants and shops. Renowned for its medieval architecture, with a spectacular old quarter, the town provided the setting for the film “Life is Beautiful”.

Shoppers will enjoy Arezzo's goldsmiths, jewellers, and antiques. Another one of the main attractions for visitors to Arezzo is San Francesco Church, Basilica San Francesco, which houses the famous Piero della Francesca frescoes.

The villa makes a brilliant base for exploring the wider region and larger towns including Cortona, Florence, Siena and Montalcino, which are all within easy reach.
